Syria's foreign minister has said his government has agreed to attend multilateral peace talks in Geneva 'in principle.' Walid Muallem said the talks present a 'good opportunity' for a political solution to the conflict. Muallem announced during a press conference while visiting Iraq's capital Baghdad that the Syrian regime had agreed 'in principle to participate in the international conference.' The US and Russia hope to convene it in Geneva next month. 'Since the eruption of the crisis in Syria, we have believed that dialogue among the Syrian people is the solution,' Muallem said, flanked by his Iraqi his counterpart Hoshyar Zebari and Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.
